    Hey all,
    I recently bought the track key (new part not the paper voucher) and am wondering if I can keep my carbon fiber airaid intake with it. Are any of you guys running track key and a intake? I have the venturi tube installed as well.

    I called and talked to Ford Performance and they basically said "I don't know, try it and let us know."

    I have an extended warranty so I don't want to go with a different tune as of now but it is in the future.

    Thank you

    I have the CF PJ Airaid CAI and use the TracKey with the Venturi tube without issue in my Boss. Have been with this setup for years.

    Thanks Tyme. Got the track key installed last Wednesday and like it so far. Maybe 50 miles on it so far.

    Hi Tyme, did you dyno the car back to back, or see that done?

    I did not. The two dynos I did run came too far apart and with a few other variables involved. Here is the Dyno with just the CAI and 84.5 TB added but before the Kooks shorty headers.

    Tyme are you still running the track key with those mods? I thought headers were a no go without an aftermarket tune.

    The Kooks shorties do not require a tune. If you're thinking of going that route, there a poster on TMO selling his at a great deal.
